- AN IMPORTANT LETTER -
IS TIME TO BUILD A USS OKLAHOMA MEMORIAL AT PEARL HARBOR
attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 by the Empire of Japan forever
changed the United States of America. The surprise attack and enormous loss
of life galvanized and united our country to "Remember Pearl
Harbor" as a rallying cry.
A USS OKLAHOMA MEMORIAL?
the many ships in Pearl Harbor that day were nine battleships (Arizona,
California. Maryland, Oklahoma, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Utah, West
Virginia) where many sailors and marines fought bravely for their very
lives. From the horrific damage done that day only three battleships did not
return to action, the USS Arizona where I, 177 men to this day lie entombed
and for which a memorial does exist, the USS Utah where 59 men lie entombed
and for which a memorial does exists and the USS Oklahoma where 429 men lost
their lives (second highest) and for which a memorial does not exist. The
eight other battleships in the harbor that day all have memorials. Only the
USS Oklahoma has no permanent memorial.
The building and dedication of a lasting and fitting USS Oklahoma Memorial
on Ford Island (near mooring berths Fox 5/'6) at Pearl Harbor is the sole
reason For our efforts. We are targeting December 7, 2005 for the dedication
of this memorial to honor those brave souls who in the words of Abraham
Lincoln "gave their last full measure of devotion".
